We went to this restaurant because we wanted to support the work they do with disadvantaged youth. We were very glad we went as not only were we able to support their work, but we had a fantastic meal. It is easy to see why the graduates do well and find jobs - this was one of the best meals...

KOTO is an acronym for ‘Know One, Teach One’. The subject “ones” are disadvantaged children. KOTO Kumho teaches everyday skills at a location away from the restaurant, but for those young adults who exhibit a propensity for the tourism/hospitality industry, advanced skills are taught in the restaurant as apprenticeship. Our Overseas Adventure Travel tour company had arranged for a meal.... More

Food was great and a fantastic cause. If there are some small errors in service, remember it's a training college, so go gentle. Please support.

A wonderful institution helping young kids in the right direction! We had a late breakfast visit where I enjoyed simply the best Pho Ga in 15 days' travel in Vietnam... More power to you guys, I fully intend to donate to the foundation when I can. B-)

I discovered this restaurant on the 3rd floor rooftop of the shopping centre adjacent to my hotel. As I arrived there was a large group of English, middle aged tourists who were just finishing off their meals. In fact, when they all left together I felt quite alone. A young, nervous waitress approached me to take my order. I was... More

Know One Teach One (KOTO) is a wonderful endeavor here in HCMC. We throughly enjoyed our meal and time here. How they are trying to change and impact lives is noteworthy to say the least. Our servers were all quite friendly and engaging. It a great way to support a worthy cause - go and enjoy.

The food was delicious and well-presented and the service was efficient and professional. We loved the fresh spring rolls with sour pork, and the green mango salad. The fish in coconut cream was delicious. While there were lots of young people eating there, the separate dining areas kept it from getting noisy.

His restaurant trains young people who face various challenges to be restaurant staff. We found the service charming (if a little intense at times) and the food rather good (especially as we had a set menu). Everything was cooked and served properly and the drinks orders (and bills) all came to the right people. This was a thoroughly enjoyable meal... More
